Countries/Groups Most Likely to Start World War 3

This war will be the end of us, but I wonder who's going to start it.

The Top Ten

1 United States of America United States of America The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

What the heck, people? Trump couldn't start a world war even if he wanted to. He doesn't have the millitary know-how. And plus, Trump isn't trying to cause problems. He's trying to fix problems. He just does a really bad job at it. - JustAnAccount

Trump is threaten Russia, China, North Korea, Syria, Iran and starting trade wars with Mexico and Canada. Trump isn't respected among world leaders, so one of his mistakes could easily start world war 3.

Donald trump is the person that start the next world war

Donald J. Trump DEFINITELY has motive to start World War III.
Many say he's too dumb to start WW3.
Guess what? Nobody needs to be intelligent enough to start bombarding a country with nuclear bombs and BOOM (pun intended) there starts WW3.
I'm serious. That's how you can start WW3.

2 North Korea North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

This has to be number one! I am affended that people say USA will start a war because of Donald Trump. I disagree. First off, Trump is much better than Obama and Hilary has done nothing for the past 20 years. We have to give Trump a chance. On the other hand, North Korea is a country that doesn't let anybody live. They hacked into USA. They have nukes. They are dangerous and scary. USA is the best country ever, leave a like if you agree. GO USA!

North Korea is obviously gonna start world war 3 due to the fact that a nuclear brat is the leader in this country and North Korea is LITERALLY THE WORLDS CRAPPIEST COUNTRY!. Stupid nuclear leader and crappy third world country equals boom

North Korea + China is a very warlike alliance. Korea has already shown that they do not have common sense, and they have enough short-range missiles to cause serious problems for someone near them. China has the manpower and economic strength that they might believe that they could win World War 3. Trump will not start WW3 guys, come on!

Though the U.S. can be most likely first to start WW3 due to Trump's motives, if they don't step in North Korea would be the one to do so.

Putin wants war with the west. He hates everything about western culture, seeing it as incomparable with the existance of the Russian state, and wants to obliterate it. He also wants to rebuild the Soviet Union, but under fascist rather than communist domination. This would involve the annexation of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, which are members of NATO.

Not True, he once said "Whoever doesn't miss the soviet union has no heart, but whoever wants it back has no brain" - SoldierOfFortune

Fun fact putin has went over his two term limit so he's turning the country into a dictator ship

They have a decent military. And if the Chinese says they're going to war, they're definitely going to back them up. - Alpha101
